EVOLVE or REVOLVE
You really have to have your head firmly lodged in a tight dark space to not recognize that something is terribly wrong in the world of human affairs these days. It’s a lot easier to miss that there is a lot terribly right in the world of human affairs (and that is a side-effect of what’s wrong). Douglas Adams once shared some sage advice with the world when he offered the axiom “Don’t panic!”. It’s a new twist on an old admonishment to be sure, but still bears keeping in mind as we watch the crew of our Titanic civilization frantically rearranging deck-chairs and throwing the women and children overboard (ostensibly into life-boats – please tell me there are life-boats over that side!) Fear suppresses love, and love dissolves fear, so where are you going to lay your chips? Since so much time and money is spent in an ongoing and concerted effort to render us afraid, and so dumb and dehumanized that we even doubt the power of love, it behooves all sane and conscious people to spare no effort in reversing this trend. Around the world a spontaneous eruption of human solidarity is forming – a communion that threatens to completely transform the diseased social, political, and economic structures that are decaying around us. Parallel to this overdue natural evolutionary necessity is a frantic criminal conspiracy to channel this blossoming consciousness into the same tired, self-destructive revolutionary models of yesteryear. In an effort to protect our evolutionary potential from our revolutionary habits, I am delighted to offer for your consideration a treasure of a book called “The Manifesto of Real Democracy”. As putting prophets before profits is a longstanding company policy, we are also pleased to offer a full money-back guarantee. The book is regularly priced at $10, but we’re selling it for only $6.67 in the hopes that you’ll read it. If you bring it back for a refund after having done so, then we’ll thank you for reading it as we hand you your money back!
It’s high time for our evolution, and we’ll need to be wise as serpents to avoid another iou revolution instead. This book lifts the facade from our “democracy” revealing the poisonous “demockery” lurking underneath. If you know something’s terribly wrong with western “democracy” but can’t quite put your finger on it… then read this book! Cheap, timely, actionable, peaceful solutions included!!!

P.S.: Congratulations to the Libyan peoples’ Jamahiriya government (that’s the legitimate one whose assets Harper wants to steal and give to the “rebel” TNC crooks for kickbacks) on the capture of the CIA’s Tripoli HQ, and on breaking the sieges on Sirte and Bani Walid. Keep those rats running, colonel – your wisdom is winning the real war spectacularly, thank God! NATO is like a petulant child with a stick who’s been told after eating all of his honey that he can’t have any more right now…and Libya is like a big juicy nest of bees.
P.P.S.: This note is for those people who take umbrage at my posts to the point that they want to debate loudly in the shop – just not when I’m there. Please stop abusing my people. Grow a spine and come and talk to ME about MY opinions, or just S.T.F.U., or go and pester someone who’s scared of your PC threats and mindless regurgitation of tired lies masquerading as “truth”. Thanks, and do try to have a nice day – nobody is bombing YOUR neighbourhood right now here in Canada, so be happy!
